SAN DIEGO - eMusicWire -- San Diego, California artist Marc Westray of the DNGR collective is a creator who has specialized in pop art, abstract art and photography for over 15 years. Always keeping an eye on growth and expansion, Marc is consistently adding new items to his portfolio. From art on prints and canvases, to t-shirts, buttons, magnets and mirrors, NFTs opened up a whole new world to venture into. Westray launched his first NFT series though OpenSea (@TheRealDNGR / on January 9th.

NFTs, or Non-Fungible Tokens, are basically one of a kind digital assets, in this case digital art rather than physical art. Once sold by the artist, ownership is transferred to the buyer who can keep it as a collectible, hold onto it as an investment into the artist or movement, use it for status or membership with a club or group of specific NFT owners with perks and benefits, or flip it to try and make a profit. They are usually very limited from one-offs to small batch limited editions, priced from hundreds to thousands of dollars each.

Taking the art and crypto space by storm, NFTs are at peak popularity with some saying it is still in its infant stages. With that in mind Westray saw it as a great time to begin to create and invest in the NFT world. His first series is called Abstractimals and consists of original abstract art where he draws the main body of the artwork in one continuous stroke, and then adds other shapes to it. Marc looks for faces in the main design and adds eyes, mouths, tongues, teeth etc., creating a hybrid mashup of abstract artwork, cartoons, animals and monsters.

Marcs Abstractimals series contains rare black and white one offs, the bare bones original drawings of his Abstractimals. Then there is a second version of each, sectioned off, colored in, and on a white background, and multiple variations of each with colored backgrounds which are limited editions of 10 and 100 of each. It is essentially a collection representing the history of the Abstractimals artwork from original inception to NFT, so it is a unique series. Once sold out there will be no more of these specific pieces created as NFTs. They are also available to be resold by the buyers at any time.
